Dar es Salaam, Tanzania | Xinhua | The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said on Tuesday that it has embarked on a project aimed at empowering students in higher learning institutions to design effective and interactive social media content in reductions of HIV infections.

Due to technological advancement, youth use social media platforms as a place to communicate, connect and learn, UNESCO said in a statement, adding that the empowerment of students in effective social media content is also aimed at reducing unintended pregnancies and gender-based violence.
